What Remains of Edith Finch (PS4) Review

I am not sure when it happened, but at some point, it seems “walking simulator” became a pejorative. As a result, you do not have to look far to find a message board or discussion about renaming the genre to something more representative of what happens in the game:...

Akiba’s Beat Review – PS4

NEET: Short for "Not in Employment, Education, or Training."Typically considered to be underskilled shut-ins who live by themselves in humble yet comfortable apartments, NEETs are known to mooch off their parents' good will to play video games and watch anime all day...

Review: Seasons After Fall

It has been an amazing year for games in 2017 thus far, with huge releases such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Horizon Zero Dawn just to name a few. A large majority of these big releases have something in common, in that they all feature...

Review: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

If you think of the Nintendo Switch as a portable, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an incredible leap for the series compared to Mario Kart 7 on 3DS. If the Nintendo Switch is your home console, then Mario Kart 8 Deluxe offers the same great experience as it did on Wii U with...

Robinson: The Journey (PS VR) Review

Locomotion is one of the obstacles that might prevent VR from gaining mass appeal. In traditional games, we take for granted our characters are walking forward, turning smoothly, and looking a different direction than we are moving. In VR though, all of those things I...

Album Review: Michelle Branch – Hopeless Romantic

If you are a frequent listener to the PSVG Podcast (and if you are not, get on that) you will know the love I (and Coach Mo) have for Michelle Branch is significant. Potentially problematic. Either way, my long awaited dreams of a new album from Meech have finally...

Review: Kamiko

Are you looking for a bite-sized, quick fix, on your Nintendo Switch? I can recommend the perfect title for you, Kamiko. Developed by the indie team at Skipmore, Kamiko is charming little “action RPG” that is thrives in small play sessions and the “on the go” spirit...

Why is PSVG obsessed with GFuel? (Product Review)

It all started as an idea I had for an article. We’ve all been bombarded if you are entrenched in gaming culture with energy drinks, mountain dew ads, and now this new gamer focused drink mixes (C4 Cellucore, Mixt, and GFuel). So I thought it would be worthwhile...

Ghost Recon Wildlands – The Ultimate Review

Ghost Recon Wildlands will be one of the most underrated games of 2017, but offers the player one of the best MilSim experiences ever built in one of the most beautiful environments crafted in gaming. Whether you are a shooter or an explorer, an adventurer or an achievement/trophy hunter, the Wildlands offers a reward and exciting experience that must be enjoyed one province at a time. And yes, even though it is awesome to play solo, it is better with others.

Mr. Shifty Review – Switch

Mr. Shifty is a game with a lot of potential that, at launch at least, is rendered nearly unplayable by performance issues on the Nintendo Switch. In a game that is fully reliant on having quick reflexes, and where one errant move can erase minutes of progress, these...
